Eagle shot
Posted By: wildman, 03-06-2009, 01:33 PM

Raptors (Golden eagles?) crossing the Great Divide of the Rocky Mountains of N. America and heading into the setting sun.

Note: You are looking down from a vantage point of 18000 feet. The pilot estimated the birds to be at about 15000 feet. The Rocky Mountains are below the clouds.

Beautiful image with such an intense blue. The cloud creates a great visual impact with the bird hovering around in the centre

That's cool. I had no idea they would fly that high. You didn't stick one of those long tele's out the window for a close up?

Great shot, I like that blue sky and those puffy white clouds. Didn't think eagles flew that high, We have a few in our area this year a first. We have lots of osprey and they chase the eagles out of their area, bald and golden, exciting to watch.
